Hazmat cleans up paint spill after semi goes off Abernathy overpass

Posted: Updated:
ABERNATHY, TX (KCBD) -

A driver is recovering on Wednesday after a semi went off the overpass at I-27 and Avenue D in Abernathy Tuesday night.

Six totes of 480-gallon tanks filled with white paint broke open and spilled on the ground. Paint is flammable so a hazmat crew from Wolfforth was called to clean up the spill.

The driver was taken to the hospital by Aerocare.
